Interior Design Hacks Before Moving into a New House

Moving into a new home is the perfect opportunity to restyle your house exactly how you want. Moving is a very long process; however, by taking a few straightforward steps, your transition can be smooth. But what are you supposed to do between houses to prepare? In today’s blog, Ellecor Interior Design lists a few hacks to make setting up your home after a move easier than you could’ve ever imagined!

Pack for Each Room

While you might be tempted to throw all of your similar belongings in the same box, one of the best things you can do is pack for each room. Organizing the boxes by room allows you to visualize what you want the style to be as you go from room-to-room. After packing up your home decorations from your old living room, just drop the boxes off in your new living room! Packing for each room also avoids any confusion about what is supposed to go in each room after the new house is yours!

Set Up One Room at a Time

Rather than diving in head-first, take the unpacking process one room at a time. Your home design is particular, and it can even vary in each room. Setting up one place at a time allows you to see your interior design job, and make decisions off of the setup that might carry into more rooms. This tactic also completely avoids your entire house being half unpacked, giving you at least one room to rest in after a day of hard work!

Hold Off on New Purchases

Big purchases such as couches, chairs, tables, and bed frames are complicated to move from house to house. And what if your old furniture doesn’t match the aesthetic you are going for in the new house? Holding off on these purchases gives you a chance to make your interior design exactly how you envisioned it. After unpacking, you might realize you need a piece of custom furniture to tie the room together.

Every Nook and Cranny

There are many spaces in homes, and they are often either not utilized, or not used to their full potential. Even with the smallest area, you can incorporate your home design. For example, if you have an empty corner in your new home, consider adding a small shelf to add a piece that goes perfectly with your interior design. Simple fixes like that take the house to the next level.
